I can honestly say that I have never unclipped an anchor, or weighted something or done something that would have/could have resulted in injury or worse (edit: perhaps I should say "i never have had a fear that indicated that unclipping or weighting etc"). I may have forgotten to do something I needed to, but always while "still safe". I've never done random things that other people have mentioned like "wow, lucky i had that piece in cause i randomly slipped and fell only a short distance". Like, what? how do you randomly slip and fall?
I certainly don't use a prussik (if i use it) to protect myself against forgetting to thread my belay device properly and plunging to my death.
